Cannabis Amnesty Town Hall



The Cannabis Amnesty Town Hall on Racial Justice was our flagship event designed to provide a forum for discussing the way that racial justice is intimately tied with the development of cannabis laws and policies in Canada, situating the advocacy work we do in the broader historical and social context. Part educational and part inspirational, the Town Hall critically explored the legal, political and social structures that allow racialized communities to be overrepresented in cannabis prosecutions but underrepresented in the legal cannabis industry in Canada. Designed to inspire actors in the cannabis industry to take up the fight for racial justice, it offers ways in which the legal industry in Canada can step up to counteract historical wrongs through active corporate social responsibility measures.
